senators. there's no doubt that there's going to be pain in all of these states, and that's why the white house this morning released this long study, how much pain there's going to be in each state, how many jobs are going to be lost, which jobs are going to be lost, which schools are going to be eliminated, and all these kinds of painful cuts. the president is trying to keep the pressure on these members of congress. i'm still not ruling out the possibility, based on my years here in washington, of the president and john boehner and mitch mcconnell and nancy pelosi, harry reid, getting together, sitting down this week, recognizing that this sequestration or these forced budget cuts, that's the worst way of cutting spending, coming up with some alternative. you know, it's remote. it's not necessarily, you know, likely, but it's still doable if there's some good will on both sides. >> well, we'll see. we'll see what the republicans have to say of john boehner and the house gop leaders have scheduled a news press for 4:00 p.m. today. wolf, you'll have a lot live on your program later today.
